The supports for the die (ejection presses) or base plate (die withdrawal method) are firmly screwed to the lower ram plate. Changeover and clamping systems are eliminated. The tool is changed within the press. This system is suitable for infrequent tool changes due to the resulting idle time of the machine. The adapter installation location is designed so that the idle time for tool changeovers is minimised
The column adapter makes it possible to use your own adapters, so that existing adapters can continue to be used. Shafts connect the pistons to the individual tool holder plates. The adapter is clamped and can be extended and retracted.
Tool changeover can be simply manual or all the way to fully automated with our motor-driven tool adapter quick change system.
Frey has developed a special round adapter in which the individual tool holders are nested and guided. The benefits of this adapter are:
• Easy to handle and automate
• Minimal storage space requirement
• Good accessibility
• Low acquisition cost
